Pink on parade on Golden Globes red carpet
line by Naeem Khan. Also in lowcut, old Hollywood black: Kristen Bell.
Ruth Negga, short hair slicked back, was up for a statue and sort of resembled one in a shimmery silver short-sleeve number that hugged her like a body glove, from Louis Vuitton. One observer said emergency blanket (like the one in your car trunk) came to mind.
“The liquid silver look is chic but the zipper and seaming details look like she just landed the Starship Enterprise,” Kressley said.
Rickie De Sole, fashion market and accessories director for W magazine, disagreed, saying Negga pushed boundaries on the red carpet.
“It was completely unexpected. She solidified her place as a fashion darling. Those sleeves, it’s so hard for people to pull off that sleeve, but she did.”
Watery slick hair — short, loose and in tight ponytails — was abundant, including on Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven on “Stranger Things.”
Velvet, a persistent trend on runways and red carpets, represented on Chrissy Metz, another sibling on “This is Us.” She wore it in deep blue, belted in silver at the waist.
Like Negga, Amy Adams went for metallic in a Tom Ford sequined gown in inky black and blood red. It was strapless, severely cut across her chest, showing off her fair skin and loose red hair.
“I’m really thrilled because I got to do ‘Nocturnal Animals’ with him,” she said of the designer. “He’s such a brilliant writer and director.”
Evan Rachel Wood, in an ode to David Bowie and others, decided on a sharply tailored custom tux by Altuzarra. The “Westworld” star has nothing against gowns. It’s just: “I want to make sure that young girls know they’re not a requirement.”
Octavia Spencer agreed, walking the red carpet in a classically cut blue tux designed by a friend.
Angela Bassett, Zoe Saldana,Lily Collins, Carrie Underwood, Karrueche Tran and Ryan Michelle Bathe are all in pink.
